My family lives here and it has many nice features...Kamala Nehru park, Hanging Gardens, the beautifully tree laden Nepean Road and Mount Pleasant road and a nice sports complex at Priyadarshini Park at the foot of the hill. Some attractive new buildings and a few older ones dot Ridge road and Little Gibbs road and the vast wooded tract of... More

Since i live here, ( on Nepean Sea Rd at my late father's home or on Ridge rd where my 93 year old mum stays!) I thought i should review the area. Firstly, it is no longer beautiful...there is too much ugly high-rise to ensure that ! Secondly it is incredibly crowded and traffic is terrible some parts of the... More

I went searching for Naaz restaurant where my father would take me when we visited Mumbai in the old days. This Irani eatery benignly overlooked Bombay as ti was known then. The restaurant was literally amidst a garden atop Malabar hill, the highest point in South Mumbai lording it over all that it surveys. Sadly there was no Naaz anymore,... More

This hill at the other end of Marine Drive is occupied by modern buildings and old colonial mansions in which the rich and famous of Mumbai are living. If you ever get the chance to walk till the end of Marine Drive, then venture upwards the hill and follow the main road which will eventually take you to the Hanging... More

A club with superb facilities! We were a family of around 25 people and had stayed there for 5 days from 31-4th feb 2014. Enjoyed every moment of it. Good food more than worth its value! One must be hosted by a member. Would always look for an opportunity to stay there again

Not worth getting on a flight and spending time and money just to see this. There maybe a lot of rich and famous people living here, but it is just a decent residential area, that too compared to much of Mumbai. There are a couple of bungalows and perhaps one high rise which are interesting, but in my view, that... More

Malabar Hill is the area that fetches high real estate prices. Again, we walked the area and saw some lovely apartment blocks plus penthouses with gardens - for the well-heeled folk of Mumbai. Once down the hill, one is back in the chaos that is Mumbai!
